Samsung Gear S2: Australian Hands On

Samsung’s new Gear S2 smartwatch has been officially introduced to the world, and it’s actually pretty damn impressive. Google’s Android Wear ecosystem is about to get its first true competitor outside of the Apple Watch — it’s going to be a hell of a fight.


Side By Side Video Shows Chrome's New Memory Improvements

New features are great, but there’s something to be said when a piece of software you use every day gets a few optimisations and performance tweaks.

LG's Watch Urbane Luxe Is 23-Karat Gold Bonkers

Android Wear watches are cool and all, but none of them are especially fancy. (Even the new Moto 360, with its flat tyre.) Until now, at least. An alligator leather wristband, 23-karat gold plating, and a $1000-plus price tag mean the LG Watch Urbane Luxe is a particularly niche geek accessory.
